I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia a few years back, and since then pretty much cut all obvious sources of sugar from my diet (soda, candy, etc.). However, I have kept the carbs from bread, pasta, etc. for the most part.
In the last month or so I have dramatically changed my diet as I have been lifting weights again. I have stayed away from fast food completely. I have significantly increased my protein intake as well. For a week, I had no P&P and reduced redness by about 30%...I was excited. Not to mention, my skin was less oily.
However, a few things happened. A girl I was dating mentioned I started to get bad breath and she thought it was ketosis (due to low carb intake). So I started upping my carb intake in the form of whole grain chips, rice, etc. Besides I need the carbs for bodybuilding. Still...no problems, still clear.
Yesterday though, I went to subway and got a foot long sub on white bread. Although I did not have a flush, I got about 3 P&P a few hours later. Is that bread particularly bad for you and perhaps what caused this?
I have had Brady's book for sometime, but have been reading it today. My main problem is that how can you lift weights and gain muscle mass on such a low carb diet? I am thinking I will have to balance things out, but will just have to watch out for bad items.
